I was bummed that I missed Chariots of Fire at Theater Theater. I heard great things about it, the plot sounds pretty funny and the cast…well, that cast is built to party. Plus, there is this tagline: “There will be smoke, cars, carnage, singing, a live rock band, talking nipples, sign language, and blood.”
Last night I found out it is back on and was able to procure a couple pairs of tickets to giveaway ($40!) for Friday and Saturday's shows. To win, just comment on this post on why you want to attend. I will draw winners on Friday at noon.
Chariots of Rubber, a new heavy metal musical created by local luminaries, Jeffrey Wonderful, and “Private” Mike Albano, makes its debut Thursday, July 23rd through Saturday, July 25th, at the Arena Stage, at Theater! Theater! (3430 SE Belmont).
The story revolves around a demolition derby, flesh-eating trannies, and meditations on the power of bro-ship. Set to an original score of driving, soaring, metal in the early Sabbath tradition, expertly delivered by some of Portland's top rock players. Definitely a must-see.
This is an all-original heavy metal musical about love, loss and demolition derby in Coos Bay, OR. There will be smoke, cars, carnage, singing, a live rock band, talking nipples, sign language, and blood.
“Chariots of Rubber” is written and directed by Jeffrey Wonderful, with an original score by Private Mike Albano and choreography by Lisa Ventrella. This all-star cast includes Lucynda Beth Thompson & Misti Icenbice as the Areola Sisters, Jen Shepard & Virginia Jones as Cindy, Jerud Moyer as Tommy, Darla Bolts as Jen, Seantos McDonald as Bow Tuck, Rob Taylor as the Cop, Jordana Ansley, Suzy Kinder & Kimberly Morris as Attendants and Donny Don'ts acting debut as Crash. The Chariots of Rubber band includes Private Mike Albano on guitar, Jedediah Aaker on bass & Drifter Joe Sanders on drums.
